So who worked in the garden on this holiday?
I've been home for 3 days nursing my post-dental surgery husband. Trying to prepare for him all the soft foods he can and will eat. Now I am not in the kitchen often as he is the cook and a good one at that. It is not easy as he is very hungry and cannot eat what he wants the most - meat.
Anyway, today I got up at 6am and decided I needed a day at the garden. So off I went to deadhead, plant peppers, rake, water and tidy up the tomatoes and pull the weeds. All the roses are suffering from our May gray with powdery mildew but still growing up tall for the next bloom. Then I had to come home to laundry and shopping for most soft type food. Now I rest. One thing nice - today we heard and saw fighter jets circle 3 times over our house. Very cool!
